Well, like I said - I'll take six months with one, get my $$ back out, and move on to another quirky thing to experience for six months.

It's all in the timing. A 1971 Superbeetle (mid-book) jumped from $7700 to $8200 over six months. But it's been stuck at $8800 for longer now. It will be on the market, starting at the NW Bug Run in Woodburn. I'd like to get $10K, we'll see....



When I said the '58 Canadian is the last, I actually have two. It will be around after the Super.

I had a Nissan I got from my brother for $100. He had lost his key so we had to drill out the lock cylinder. Got tired of using the screw driver to start the car each time, so installed rocker switches under the dash board to start the car. With auto locks, had to make sure that the kids or who ever borrowed the car, would not lock the doors when they got out of the car. Good times.
